Full description


Yew Tree Cottage is a fascinating individual detached character home believed to date back to the early 1700s and retaining many original features, having heavily beamed ceilings and live fireplaces, over the years the property has been lovingly restored including handcrafted kitchen by Country Crafts with hand painted and solid pippy oak door fronts, quartz granite work surfaces and attractive Aga range.

The current vendors have carried out a significant programme of work creating a ground floor master suite having stunning pitched ceiling with exposed beams and adjacent contemporary ensuite wet room, as well as adding a superb garage block which complements the main cottage offering a fantastic level of secure parking or workshop space, attached utility which potentially, subject to any necessary consents, could provide a fantastic annexe facility ideal for extended family or teenager.

The main cottage has three receptions, split by the large L shaped kitchen, with many of the rooms offering a dual aspect and to the first floor there are two further double bedrooms and bathroom with pleasant aspects out into the rear garden.

The property is an archetypal cottage and is perfect for anyone looking for a unique dwelling with immense character which combines its original period elements, which give it a warm homely feel, with the benefits of more contemporary living.

There is no doubt that one of the main features of the property is its stunning garden with the plot in total extending to approximately a quarter of an acre, benefitting from a southerly aspect as well as offering a high degree of privacy, having large lawn and well stocked perimeter borders, all accessed via an electric gated entrance with generous driveway and superb garage block with electric doors.

All of this is located within this highly regarded and much sought after Vale of Belvoir village which is well placed and convenient for both the A46 and A52 with excellent commuting to Nottingham and Leicester.

Amenities are available in the nearby market towns of Bingham and the larger town of Newark including shops, schools, doctors and dentists, leisure facilities and railway stations with high speed trains to King's Cross.
